The outgoing MBA chair is one of the founders of the association’s charitable giving platform developed as an industry model of how to use members’ expertise and resources to help individuals and families who are “dealing with challenging situations.”
To date the foundation has raised over $275,000 from members and has given 48 grants to families in the Washington metro area.
Opens Doors initiatives include a monthly housing payment grant program that provides assistance to families with critically ill or injured children. Grants enable parents to take time off from work and stay home with their children.
Still plans to focus on expanding the foundation’s operations and its outreach to assist the many families across the country dealing with difficult financial situations when caring for a child. Its mission “is very much aligned with” MBA’s commitment to the real estate finance industry.
